In a relatively surprising move, the Cleveland Browns have decided to add yet another defensive tackle.

With their second pick of the back-to-back compensatory selections, the Browns drafted Boise State DT Billy Winn at No. 205 overall. Winn is the second defensive tackle the Browns have selected in this year's draft, after having picked John Hughes in the third round that many analysts viewed as one of the biggest reaches so far.

Winn appears to have been just the opposite and perhaps a late round steal, having prior been projected to go anywhere from the second to fourth round. He might have fell on draft boards due to character concerns.

Here's his scouting report from NFL.com:

Winn has been a force up front for Boise State for several years. His consistency and ferociousness stays in your memory after watching him play. Although he isn't necessarily great with any one skill or talent, he grades out well because the whole is definitely greater than the sum of his parts. There are hitches in his play that he will need to work on to survive at the next level, such as using technique and adapting to the play speed, but once done Winn should excel. Expect him to be taken near the top of the second round by a team that knows it will be receiving a high-effort, high-energy player to roam along its front four.

What do you think of Billy Winn and the pick at No. 205?
